I learned a long time ago that I need to live with integrity and my integrity should be guided by my principles.

While the word integrity is loaded down with many philosophical discussions and debate, I find it suits me so I describe myself that way.
I found this definition of the work integrity:
Integrity is the practice of being honest and showing a consistent and uncompromising adherence to strong moral and ethical principles and values. In ethics, integrity is regarded as the honesty and truthfulness or accuracy of one's actions. Wikipedia

Recently, in the local newspaper John Bates in his column ended with this quote and I thought I would share it with you in case you don’t get the paper or may have missed it. “Every human has four endowments – self-awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom… The power to choose, to respond, to change.” Stephen Covey.



Sitting Still

Sitting still
Delighted to be where
I am
Sensing the
These woods
Hold all the
Yes, yes, yes-es
Of the natural,
Including a
Gentle footprint
And hopeful
Prayers that
Happen in

Above shy-ly
She waits
Taking her moment
Squirrels gone
Lands in the
White white snow

Woods gathering
Fragments of sound
Filled with silver white
A temple for listening
